Reviewed 30 January 2014

We stayed 5 nights in Feb 2013, and came back for 7 nights in jan 2014 which expired yesterday, but we are still here. Enjoyed it so much that we extended to 10 nights, is that a good enough recommendation?
The bungalows are beautiful, lovely bedroom with (opening) large picture windows onto the sea, via the palm trees, efficient air con. Unusually, each detached bungalow also has a large open lounge and kitchenette, 'fridge, and a large deck with 4 loungers/ chairs. Fabulous pool, very good food, need to ask for spicy if you are English. Ignore the previous comment about the poor breakfast, abundant mixed fresh fruit, fresh yoghurt, eggs however you request, possibly the best dosa we have had anywhere, fresh real fruit juices, cakes, good coffee. What's not to love?

We arrived for our 3 night stay in January 2014 after a long, bumpy journey from Mangalore Airport. They offered us a free transfer, which was very generous. They presented us with garlands and coconut juice to welcome us, and took us to our room which was facing the sea through the trees and right next to the pool. It was very clean, and ready made up with an extra bed for our daughter. They promised to show us how to use the safe, but never got round to it, but we didn't push it because they seemed so honest we didn't feel we needed it, and anyway we were the only guests for most of our stay! The food was a bit limited, but we loved it, and I'm sure they would have done any special requests if we'd asked. It was peaceful and beautiful, and the beach and sea were lovely - the sea so warm and the beach almost deserted. We didn't realise that they didn't have alcohol, and although my husband asked for beer they kept forgetting to bring it - but that did him good! We wished we had booked for longer!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the beach - the view in the morning is wonderful!

We stayed at this resort for 2 days in the month of December 2013 after seeing the reviews in trip advisor. It was indeed a wonderful place for relaxation as everyone suggests. It is a place for peace and quiet and there is virtually no activities at this resort. The rooms are sea facing and we had a room which was also adjacent to the pool. The rooms are well furnished and well maintained. There is however no tv in the room.The beach is wonderful and really private. The food is just fine and not out of this world. The spa is average as the ambience needs to be improved. Overall it was a great experience and we would like to come back again.

An excellent resort, small and refined (where we stayed unfortunately only 2 days). Beautiful and well-thought architecture of the bungalows, open to the sea at the end of the garden. Excellent and long sandy, clean beach, plus a charming swimming pool well integrated within the palm garden. The staff is efficient, helpful, pleasant and always smiling, the environment delightful and calm and the food exquisite. Only the spa could be improved and maybe enlarged: excellent massages but please ... not so much turmeric in the oil, even if it's traditional! We can warmly recommend the place and will certainly come again in 2014. Thank you Mr. Prakash for making our stay a very enjoyable one.

We can only recommend a stay in this beautiful resort. Awesome place with nice bungalows. Everything is clean, housekeeping is perfect and you have to to go to reception and beg for new towels as this happens frequently to us in India. We enjoyed this lonesome place for relaxing. No noise except nature, no horns no cars, only birds, waves etc....
We had a stay for 9 days and were sad to depart again. We will come again as soon as possible.

I did a lot of research and was glad I chose this place. We had a wonderful time. Prakash and the rest of the team did everything to make our holiday as enjoyable as possible; nothing was too much trouble for them, not even our 3am checkout and transfer to Kozhikode airport. The cottage was lovely with a great outside deck for watching the sunset over the sea, and the stars at night. The beach, food, weather and everything else was fantastic, and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in great surroundings. There are also lots of interesting things to do in the local area.
